Basic Bark Control Collar w/ Static Correction

by PetSafe

PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar


Basic Bark Control Collar effectively deters barking when it is worn. When the
vibration of your dog’s bark triggers the Sensor Probe, a static correction is administered through the Contact Points. The Bark Control Collar starts with the lowest level of static correction and then increases through 6 levels each time your dog barks within 30 seconds of the previous bark.
If your dog does not bark again within 30 seconds, the Bark Control Collar will reset itself to the lowest level of static correction. Along with each static correction, there will be an audible beep.

As an added safety feature, the Bark Control Collar will automatically shut off for 3 minutes if your dog barks 15 times or more within a 50-second period.


  • 6 levels of static correction, automatically adjusts to your dog’s temperament starting at the lowest level
  • Low battery indicator
  • Waterproof
  • Includes RFA-67 Battery


PBC-102 Bark Control Collar Manual


Important: Do not leave your dog alone the first few times he receives a static correction.

Place the Bark Control Collar properly on your dog and wait nearby until he barks. Most dogs will understand very quickly that the Bark Control Collar is disrupting their urge to bark and will relax and stop barking. Because the static correction from the Bark Control Collar may be surprising or startling at first, some dogs may bark more at the initial correction.
On rare occasions, a dog may get into a bark-correction-bark-correction cycle. If this happens, reassure your dog with calm, soothing tones. As your dog relaxes, he will understand that if he becomes quiet, he will not receive any more static corrections. The small minority of dogs that have this reaction will only have it the first time they wear the Bark Control Collar.
You should notice a reduction in your dog’s barking within the first couple of days that he wears the Bark Control Collar. At this point, it is important to remember the learning process is still not complete. Dogs will “test” this new learning experience and will increase their attempts to bark. This usually occurs during the second week a dog wears the Bark Control Collar. If this does occur, remain consistent and do not alter your use of the Bark Control Collar. You must place the Bark Control Collar on your dog in every situation when you expect him to be quiet. If your dog is not wearing the Bark Control Collar, he may resume barking and his learning would suffer a setback.


  • Before playing with your dog, turn the unit off and remove the Bark Control Collar. The activitymay cause your dog to bark, which could lead to him associating the play with the correction.
